Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated (ARINC), established in 1929, is a major provider of transport communications and systems engineering solutions for eight industries: aviation, airports, defense, government, healthcare, networks, security, and transportation. ARINC has installed computer data networks in police cars and railroad cars and also maintains the standards for line-replaceable units.[citation needed] ARINC
ARINC
was formerly headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, and has two regional headquarters in London, established in 1999 to serve the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, and Singapore, established in 2003 for the Asia Pacific region. ARINC
ARINC
has more than 3,200 employees at over 120 locations worldwide. Previously owned by the Carlyle Group, in August 2013, it was announced that the company would be sold to Rockwell Collins. The sale was completed on December 23, 2013.

ARINC
ARINC
was incorporated in 1929 as Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated. It was chartered by the Federal Radio Commission (which later became the Federal Communications Commission) in order to serve as the airline industry’s single licensee and coordinator of radio communication outside of the government. The corporation's stock was held by four major airlines of the day. Through most of its history, ARINC
ARINC
was owned by airlines and other aviation-related companies such as Boeing until the sale to The Carlyle Group
Carlyle Group
in October 2007. Not much later ARINC
ARINC
took on the responsibility for all ground-based, aeronautical radio stations and for ensuring station compliance with Federal Radio Commission (FRC) rules and regulations. Using this as a base technology, ARINC
ARINC
expanded its contributions to transport communications as well as continuing to support the commercial aviation industry and U.S. military. ARINC
ARINC
also developed the standards for the trays and boxes used to hold standard line-replaceable units (like radios) in aircraft. These permit electronics to be rapidly replaced without complex fasteners or test equipment. In 1978 ARINC
ARINC
introduced ACARS ( Aircraft
Aircraft
Communications Addressing and Reporting System), a datalink system that enables ground stations (airports, aircraft maintenance bases, etc.) to upload data (such as flight plans) and download data (such as fuel quantity, weight on wheels, flight management system (FMS) data), via an onboard Communications Management Unit (CMU). ARINC
ARINC
has expanded its business in aerospace and defense through its ARINC
ARINC
Engineering Services subsidiary. With the sale of the company to Rockwell Collins, the ARINC
ARINC
Engineering Services subsidiary split into Commercial Aerospace and Defense Services. The Defense Services branch was then purchased by Booz Allen Hamilton, remaining part of the Carlyle group. [1] Activities and services[edit] Though known for publishing " ARINC
ARINC
Standards", this role is independent of ARINC

ARINC
Industry Activities[edit] ARINC
ARINC
Industry Activities involve three aviation committees:[2][3]

AEEC (Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee): Develop the ARINC Standards, AMC (Avionics Maintenance Conference): Organize the annual Avionics Maintenance Conference, FSEMC (Flight Simulator Engineering & Maintenance Conference): Organize the annual FSEMC conference.
